Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour
Reviewed by: John G, May 2014
Crypts and Catacombs was an AWESOME tour! We started by bus and went to the Catacombs. Very interesting. The tour director, Violet, was very knowledgable. A woman who had relocated to Rome and was very much an asset to the tour. The next stop; St. Clemen's was very interesting on literally all levels. The highlight however, was the Crypts! A very interesting place to visit and in my/our opinion, the best part of the tour! So glad we decided to add this to our time in Rome! It truly was a gem!

Rebecca, our guide, was the best we have experienced in all our European tours. Her extensive historical knowledge and delightful stories made this tour one of our favorites. We would reccomend everyone take the time to explore more than the normal typical tourist destinations

This tour definitely goes to some less visited sites, for those interested in going beyond the typical Vatican, Coliseum, Forum, etc. sites. While we had one tour bus with about 35 people on it, there were 2 guides assigned which made the group smaller and more enjoyable. The catacombs were very interesting, and humbling, from a historical perspective. The bone monks were also unusual. I had seen something similar to this in Paris, but didn’t know anyone else did this. The church was wonderful too. With 4 different and individually interesting layers, the site was really unique. I think our tour guide categorized it best as “archeological lasagna.” Speaking of which, our guide was a wonderful American named Rebecca. Yes, and American guide in Rome! She was terrific! Her energy and passion for Rome was contagious, and really made the tour enjoyable. Plus, the lack of a language barrier was really nice for a change. Overall, we really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try something a little different in Rome.

We really enjoyed this tour that was a bit off the usual must see sights in Rome. This brought history, and especially early Christian history, to life in a unique way. The last stop at the Crypt of the Capuchin was a bit macabre, but overall this was a fantastic tour.

This was awesome. Learned so much about the history aspect of the crypts and catacombs. I would recommend it to anyone who would like that personal touch when learning about Rome.

A very worthwhile afternoon in Rome. Our guide was very knowledgable! This was in actuality three tours in one with a new, clean bus picking us up at a great central Rome location and moving us from place to place. The catacombs were fascinating (and why we originally signed up for the tour) but the Capuchin Crypt and Basilica of San Clemente were two of the most interesting and memorable places we saw in Rome. Very well organized and professional tour.
